Spring in the City

The city is so beautiful in the springtime when all of the trees and flowers start to bloom. I love to go for walks in Central Park on sunny days and wander outdoors exploring all the various paths and unexpected spaces. I particularly love the Conservatory Garden which is so stunning this time of year with abundant blooming flowers. The juxtaposition of city buildings and living nature you see from the park is so striking. I wish these photos were DSLR quality, but I only had my phone on me on my walks so I did my best! Regardless, you can get an idea of how pretty everything is in the spring. This is exactly why spring is my favorite time of year. 

I brought along a book to read in the grass while catching a little sun (which was featured here). There is nothing I love more than relaxing in the sun in the spring or summer! For walking I wore comfy espadrille style shoes in a fun bright print, paired with my new favorite shorts and a few layers on top. The weather can be so unpredictable in the spring -- just yesterday we had a bizarre mix of clouds, wind, peeks of warm sun, and unexpected rain showers. 
I love how colorful the park gets with all of the flowers and fresh green grass springing to life!

I found this interesting little fortress on top of a hill in the North Woods. Apparently it is called The Blockhouse.
